1934 directed by Aleksandr Faintsimmer starring Mikhail Yanshin, Boris Gorin-Goryainov, Nina Shaternikova, Sofiya Magarill, Erast Garin and Mikhail Rostovtsev. Odd, Soviet-era comedy from a story by Yuri Tynyanov. Concerns a Lieutenant who does not exist who gets blamed for disturbing the Czar and is whipped, marched to Siberia, returned then promoted all the way to General. Considered a satire on the Soviet bureaucracy.
I downloaded the "Restored" version created by J. Clement and did a little enhancing using Final Cut Pro which has Sound Track Pro incorporated into it. For the video I added a sharpener which increases the definition then adjusted the lighting from scene to scene, primarily turning down the white light that was up too high throughout the film. For the volume I did a slight noise reduction then added two effects to amplify the volume then went through the video a couple of times adjusting the volume so that the peaks wouldn't be too high. I left on the excellent closing credits but slowed that portion of the video down so the credits scroll more slowly and can be more easily read. Then I tapped on a closing credit for myself. The subtitle file already available works fine with this.
For compression I used Handbrake and checked the box for "large file size" which creates a 64 bit file. The resulting file size is 1.68GB, a bit unwieldy for uploading and downloading but the mp4 is better. I will be getting an Apple program called "Compressor" a short while from now and will see if I can create a smaller but higher quality mp4 with that.
In the meantime, I'm certain, (at least I hope) you will find the audio to be much improved and the video a little.
